Nice Igloo.com Landing Page

14

I was doing some domain name research today when I came across a landing page I thought was well done. If you visit Cater.com, you can see that it forwards to a page within the Igloo.com website where a potential buyer can make an offer to purchase the domain name. I think it's a wise idea to forego a limited amount of PPC revenue in the hopes of closing a sale on this valuable domain name.

Here's what I like about the landing page:

Good Things Come In Small Packages

This is a guest Post by Andrew Rosener, CEO at Media Options. Andrew's company has sold millions of dollars worth of domain name assets in the last few years. I asked Andrew to write about the differences between working with a large domain name brokerage and an independent domain broker.

It seems that the pool of domain brokers is getting bigger every week, which can only be seen as a good sign that the market still has a lot more meat on the bone.  But as more newcomers, both brokers and investors alike, come into the domain market it becomes ever more important to analyze the various characteristics that make a good fit between you, your domain name (or the domain you want to acquire) and the domain broker; sometimes good things come in small packages!

There is a very clear distinction between a large corporate domain brokerage firm and an independent domain broker.  Both can be great and highly effective, but from my experience they are effective for different things and purposes.

Rob Sequin Guest Post: Options for Your Domains

16

This is a guest post written by domain broker, Rob Sequin.

As part of my 2011 planning, I have been giving considerable thought about the current and future use of my domain names. This nice thing about owning a number of domains is that domain portfolio owners have numerous options for what they can do with their domains.

Of course everyone's portfolio is different as are business models and goals but I thought that it may be helpful to offer some guidance about use of domains. Here is a list of what you can do with your domains...


  • Development

  • Forwarding

  • Leasing

  • Minisites

  • Nothing

  • Parking


Development

Summary: Website development requires skills and software. To develop a site you need to have a server, website design software/platform like xsitepro, Wordpress, Dreamweaver etc. Development requires lots of time and skill or money if you have to hire a developer.

Pros:

Adds value to the domain so long as your development is appreciated by search engines, visitors, direct advertisers and potential → Read More


Work With a Domain Broker

0

Maybe it's the economy or the holidays, but I have been receiving a lot of requests for domain brokerage services. I do not broker domain names. I would rather take on all of the risk if I think a name is well priced than use my connections to sell a name to possibly earn 10% of a sale. It's too much of a pain in the you know what to negotiate a sale between buyer and seller when there isn't enough commission to make it worth the effort.

I also have never wanted to create a domain sales newsletter, since many of those start out strong and seem to peter out after some amount of time due to poor names or high asking prices. Never the less, there are a number of people who do broker domain names and are very good at what they do. Of course, the domain names most accept depends entirely on the quality and the price.

If you are looking to sell a domain name, or if you want to buy a domain name with the services of a domain broker, you can have a look at this list of domain brokers. In addition, you can also read more about domain → Read More
